Problem2_emoticonProblem:

1. A lot of people have multiple credit cards
2. and sometimes when they get fines or late fees
3. they would not know, since they would have forgotten
4. to check their credit card statements.

1. You will build a website and and an app
2. Users create an account and once he signs in,
3. He will add his online id/password of  his credit card websites.

4. All his credit card data is pulled automatically every day and
5.  monitored

7. and if there are any late fees or fines
8. an email or a text will be sent immediately
9. Before you build your app, for design ideas, you can check
10. Mint.com which pulls all financial data for their registered users.

12. I love it as it does lots of things automatically.
